This STEAM project covers K-2.E.2 (Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate and investigate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve an identified problem.) Engage your students in the world of STEAM by teaching them about shapes and how they contribute to the building and design of Carnival rides! This product comes with 2 experiments: one supplemental 20 minute activity and one full length STEAM activity that could easily be split into two days. Students will test the ability of shapes to withstand weight, as well as creating their own Carnival ride, all while learning the scientific method and their shapes! This product also includes a PowerPoint version for students to easily view, as well as mini video clips of the rides shown in this product.
